    He needs to know he's too injury prone.

    AG of course!!!!

    But would move EGo and House instead.

    Maybe 3 team trade with IND (EGo, House, Rockets FRP), ORL (Oladipo) and HOU (Aaron Gordon).

    Brodie
    Beard
    RoCo
    PJ
    AG

    With McLemore, Nwaba, Green and Bruno off the bench. Maybe re-sign Rivers (or Tyler Johnson) and use MLE on Serge Ibaka (unlikely) Aaron Baynes (likely) or split it between Josh Jackson and Harry Giles.

    Harden’s three point stroke, and the entire team’s actually, looks effortless. #freshlegs

    Lawd bless him.

    I mean I didn't want to believe him when he said he is explosive as ever and his shot is back.

    It was more than a stretch.

    Why did hardens defender try to triple team russ and leave the top scorer in the league open?

    Very solid win! So what's up with the sound of our local broadcast or any for that matter? Where's the noise from those fans on the Zoom calls? Where's the 2k sounds? Where's the music? More importantly, where's the balance as the commentators are toned up / noise from on the court is toned down? Part of the fun was hearing what they say and this is an opportunity to hear more on the court action, not ****ing less!!! If this is the final product then play-off games will be boring AF.

    ego is literally made of glass. seen that ankle tweak maybe hundreds of times (and a dozen times on myself) without all the drama afterwards. this is a guy throughout his career who's had an extremely low pain threshold. unless he's feeling 100%, he doesn't play. morey giving him that huge contract extension is like ryno-lite smh

    Yup Harden would have walked it off and keep playing.
    It didn’t look that bad.

    Actually that tweak really didn't look that bad at all. I guess he won't be out for too long.

    Twitter is fun. Now they're saying Harden only scored those points because it was the Celtic's 2nd team. Hate to break to those Twitter fools, he's been averaging 35 points a game for the past season.

    Anyway, if we hit our 3pt shots, no team is beating us. I feel this is the fittest Harden's looked in a long time. Also, I do like Harden playing off the ball more and moving around. Gives Westbrook more options and confuses the other team.

    Yeah probably in 2018, now you could say the the same about half of the teams in the NBA.

    All are living and dying by the 3, the only exception is they play Centers.

    Doubts can only be removed by a dominant performance in the playoffs and a championship, which Harden has not yet been able to deliver.
